Sterculius, Stercutius, or Sterquilinus

Sterculius, Stercutius, Or Sterquilinus, a Roman divinity invoked by husbandmen. The name is derived from stercus, manure, and is applied by some to Saturn, because he taught the use of manure in agricultural processes. Others give it to Picumnus, the son of Faunus, who is likewise credited with introducing improvements in agriculture (Macrob. Sat. 1, 7; Serv. Ad AEn. 9, 4; 10, 76; Lactant. 1, 20; Pliny, H.N. 17, 9; August. De Civ. Dei, 18, 15).
